How To Paint A Tennis Court

“Everyone said to Vincent van Gogh, “You can’t be a great painter, you only have one ear.” And you know what he said? “I can’t hear you.”- Steve Carell I’ve never seen a tennis court being painted, but I’m curious how they get it so accurate with the finish, and in particular how the court lines are so straight. My local hard courts are red with a surrounding green colour, which is fairly common in the UK, but watching some matches in...

How To Make A Grass Tennis Court

To date, I’ve never played on a grass tennis court. I’ve also never played on a clay court either. All the matches I’ve played over the past few years have been on hard courts.

Tennis Court vs Pickleball Court

Several years ago when I visited a friend in the US, he explained to me how he’d taken up pickleball. Now, this was a sport I’d never heard of, so I asked him to go into it in further detail. After I understood the concept, he invited me to play a game! I loved it. I’ve played most racquet sports in my life in addition to tennis, namely squash, badminton and racket ball.. ..and now I can add pickleball to the list. So what is...

Pros and Cons of Tennis Court Surfaces

To date, I’ve only ever played on hard courts. In the UK, this is the most common surface to play on, and for a small fee per year, I can play as many times as I like in my local area… …providing there’s a free court. It’s tremendous value really. However, I would love to try playing on clay or grass someday, just to experience the differences between them. I might discover one surface suits my game better.
